Tap at brewpub. Pours light, translucent amber. Raisin malt, sweet vinegar and hops in the nose. Flavor features light touches of grapefruit and floral hops. Mouthfeel is full and the flavor is spread along the tongue. Pleasant surprise; very approachable. Good starter for the style. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 1, 2006
This was simply delicious in a word. Woody, with some butterscotch candy notes, mixed with some bready dough. Hops are a bit of a spicey pine needle variety. Pretty well balanced. seamus77 (31) - kansas city, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2006
one of my favorite offerings at 75th, a spot-on american version of ye oulde english IPA, coppery colour, a nice foral/pine needle hop dryness that lingers on the tongue. vyvvy (6834) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Draft as St. Louis Microfest - Poured brownish gold with a soapy white head. The aroma was quite assertive with caramel and piney hops. Some fairly sturdy malts start things out, then the hops kick in. There is woody and piney traits to the hops. Pretty dry bitterness that last a while. Pretty nice IPA.

On tap at the 2006 Best of the Midwest Brewers’ Festival. Good aroma- flowery indeed. Poor head retention. Dark gold color. Tart A little bit bitter. Good malt content. A fairly good IPA, but nothing to rave about. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2006

Hazy brownish orange off white head that faded rather quickly.Intense hop aroma it was PNW hops a’ plenty not so much citrus grapefruit as floral pineyness.Taste was very good plenty of malt backbone to balance the hop bitterness.Medium full body and light carbonation.I enjoyed it Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2005
1/2 Gallon strange looking growler. Copper. Dulled herbaceous and piney nose. Thin sweet caramel flavor with medicinal and herbaceous hops. English IPA’s really have to be good to impress me and this one wasn’t. I like the name though. tjthresh (1872) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Cask. Spicy/Floral hop aroma. Amber with no sign of head due to cask conditioning. Malt sweetnes and hop bitterness are well balanced. Thin and oily. Draft version. Much more hop character. More aggresive. Just way better.
